Further to my previous reply ...

What you wrote sounds broadly proxy-like.  Maybe all you
need to write is a protocol provider module for mod_proxy,
and leave mod_proxy to take care of connection pooling?
mod_proxy already supports applications protocols
(mod_proxy_ajp, mod_proxy_fcgi) in addition to the more
traditional proxy protocols (mod_proxy_http, mod_proxy_ftp).
